Tantalum

Tantalum (Ta) is a refractory metal.  Tantalum is quite soft compared to tungsten or even molybdenum.  The density and melting point of tantalum lie between that of tungsten and molybdenum.

Tantalum is often used in capacitors or other electronic devices and is often used to alloy other metals. Its high corrosion resistance is useful in chemical reaction pipes and vessels.

Midwest Tungsten can provide tantalum in wire, sheet, tube, and plate form.  MTS also manufactures vacuum evaporation boats from tantalum.
